Beyond Jihad: Critical Voices from Inside Islam
Kim Ezra Shienbaum, Jamal Hasan
Academica Press,LLC, 2006 - Political Science - 296 pages
This collection of non Western scholarly voices is a long awaited remedy to the lack of critical commentary by Muslim intellectuals on the nature of modern Jihadi terrorism and the political debate within Islam over the direction of resistance to modernization and secularization of traditional societies.
The work is divided into three parts:
1) Understanding the Islamist Mind
2) Understanding Islamism and Politics
3) Beyond Jihad: Expanding the Circle of Sanity
Major figures such as Dr. Ali Sina, Sayeed M. Said and Syed Kamran Mirza contribute previously unpublished essays; indeed the work has virtually new essays from all contributors. With historical introductions by Dr Kim Sheinbaum and Jamal Hasan.
